Ever since The Jetblue Amazon portal launched, I haven’t gotten a single Jetblue point, and it’s odd because I’ know I’ve shopped through their numerous times. I also know that Amazon tracks portals by items you add to cart, so I always had an empty cart, then clicked through portal, and then added item to cart and checked out. For the past month, I was curious why every time I sent an Amazon link, it would always end with “&tag=wwwwarriorsof-20.” Well, I finally did a Google search the other day and it turns out it was possibly due to a Chrome extension that was appending the tag. That meant that that extension was getting credit for all the items I’ve bought on Amazon and also why Jetblue wasn’t paying me miles.
What extension was it?
I’m not quite sure, but I had disabled quite a few of them. After I removed them, I noticed that the tag was no longer there.
You can type this into the URL bar – chrome://extensions/ and it should list all of your Chrome extensions. Keep removing or disabling until the tag goes away.
I should have looked this up sooner since I’m sure it cost me at least 10,000 Jetblue points. Shady ass Chrome extensions…
